    Moderators, give feedback when you close threads

    I see when threads get closed there is very little feedback as to why it happened besides "I think this thread is done".
    Lack of feedback is one of the biggest reasons for frustration in any kind of exchange (be it in a forum or someone gets banned)
    I suggest that once you decide that when you close a thread,
    1. give reasons as to why you closed the thread
    2. if appropriate, summarize the points (in a unbiased manner) given
    3. if appropriate, suggests possible solutions to the problem at hand.

    We as a community don't know everything, being explained things by dev not only reduces BM in the whole forum but generally increases co-operation.

    Note, this also applies to everything PR thing you do.
    TUSKY GO!!!

    It was quite obvious as to why the thread you are referring to was locked. It was filled with racist remarks and accusations. Regardless, I'll remember to make it more clear in the future.

    Thank you for keeping this in mind. Honestly, it was more of a general comment on forums than a remark on that thread. I agree that the thread should have been closed but others might not agree and hence be frustrated. Not discrediting your work. Honestly, I think you guys have been doing well
    TUSKY GO!!!
